Set the Stage for Cadena & Illium - Photo Contest!

Both Cadena and Illium are quite stylish, but there's no limit to how hot or cool one can be! Of course, pretty pictures can awe many, however, what we're searching for is depth. Capture a picture of Cadena or Illium in both a stylish and meaningful light to enter in the contest.

Here's your chance to show us your understanding of Cadena or Illium in the form of a photo!

HOW TO ENTER

• Save and print out the art files (Cadena, Illium, or both). Both color or black & white printouts are fine.
• Cut out the character and place them in the desired setting.
• Take a photo of the character printout in the setting, and post the photo to Twitter or the MapleStory forums.
o For Twitter, the post must include either #CadenaArtContest or #IlliumArtContest to be entered in the contest.
o For the MapleStory forums, the post must be made in the official contest thread.
o Include the name of your MapleStory character and World with your entry.

Posts must be made before the end of the contest submission period, November 30, 2017.

RULES AND JUDGING:

You may submit one entry per character per platform. For example, you can post a picture of Cadena on Twitter, and a picture of Illium on Twitter. You can also post a picture of Cadena on the forums, and a picture of Illium on forums. However, you cannot post the same picture on both platforms—the setting must be different!

Multiple submissions, plagiarism, and use of inappropriate content (in the opinions of the judges) shall be grounds for disqualification.

The full disclosure of the Official Rules for this contest can be found here:
http://forums.maplestory.nexon.net/discussion/16800/official-rules-set-the-stage-for-cadena-illium#latest

Judging Criteria:
  • 25% Creativity – How much effort was put into the creation of your setting?
  • 25% Accuracy – How well does your setting reflect the character’s lore or theme?
  • 25% Humor – Is your setting funny or clever?
  • 25% Originality – How original is your setting? Is it different from other submissions?

Example Entry:

As you can see, I did not Photoshop this. I simply printed out a picture of Cadena and placed the cut out in a real life scene. Let me know if there are still any confusions and we will do our best to address them.
PRIZES:

The prizes will be different depending on which platform you decide to participate in with this contest!
To participate on Twitter, post your photo with the following hastags: #CadenaArtContest or #IlliumArtContest

1st Place (Twitter): One MapleStory framed canvas art print (Cadena)
2nd Place (Twitter): One MapleStory mug of your choice (Orange Mushroom, Slime, Pink Bean, or Yeti)
3rd Place (Twitter): One MapleStory plush of your choice (Orange Mushroom, Slime, Pink Bean, or Yeti)

To participate on the forum, post your photo in this submission thread.

2nd Place (Forums): One MapleStory mug of your choice (Orange Mushroom, Slime, Pink Bean, or Yeti)

    To be clear,
    1. For the setting, is it limited to real-world settings (e.g. a local cafe or park)? Or can it be a staged/crafted setting (e.g. using paper or clay to create a setting)?
    2. What kind of photo-manipulation is allowed, if any? Do digitally-created or drawn designs qualify?
    3. For entries, in sum, is each user allowed to submit 4 different entries in total, 2 per character (Illium, Cadena), 2 per platform (Twitter, forums)?

    1. It must be a real world setting!
    2. You may change the lighting of the photo, but you may not add new items/effects onto the photo (Let me know if you'd like me to clarify further on this, I can provide more examples too if needed)
    3. 4 would be correct. You can post Illium and Cadena on Twitter, then again on the forum.

    Clarify on picture modification please. I would like to put my environment/props on my cutout without altering the image.

    Take the image from your computer and upload it to an image hosting website, such as Imgur or TinyPic. Once uploaded, right click on the image and select "Copy Image URL". Then click on the image button when writing your comment and paste the URL, like so:

    I think an example is definitely in order, Arwoo.
    Looking at what people uploaded so far, either I misunderstood the instructions, or some of them did.

    I think that the context is to take your cutout and put it somewhere IRL. I plan on posting my entries within the week...hehehe.

    I agree with AKradian can we please have an example?

    I understood it the same as Petalmagic, not a photoshopped image but a cut out placed IRL and then a photo taken which is then uploaded. Am I wrong?
